•People deficient in vitamin C might be at greater risk for bleeding in the brain, also called hemorrhagic stroke, according to a study reported at the American Academy of Neurology in Philadelphia. 

•Researchers at the University of Alabama dispelled several myths, including these: Drinking water won’t aid weight loss, ice-cold water doesn’t burn extra calories, the 8-glasses of water rule is a myth, and coffee is one way to rehydrate. 

•Food labels are under the microscope and being reviewed for major changes in the future. Under consideration are requests to place calorie counts in bold print and to separate added sugars from natural sugars. Serving sizes also should reflect typical intakes that more accurately reflect the way people eat. Final decisions are expected next year and companies will have two years to update their packaging.
